My setup includes:

Sonos Beam gen2 

BenQ TH534

Playstation 4

Laptop connected to Benq via HDMI to watch movies.


Hello community.

I am totally new person in the community. My wife bought me a fast Christmas Gift:) 
I would like to know how to correctly connect my components to generate sound from my Sonos Beam gen2.  At this point, I just want to connect and receive sound from my new soundbar. 
Later I will buy additional speakers. 
Please let me know if there’s a workaround that I have missed so far. Thanks.

The Beam requires an HDMI ARC or optical port to connect to. Unfortunately your projector is equipped with neither one of these. You need to use an adapter like the HDFury Arcana to connect the Beam to the projector. The Arcana will also allow you to get the highest quality audio from any media device connected to the Arcana.


NOTE: You will first need to set up the Beam on a TV with HDMI ARC before you can use the Beam with the Arcana and projector.
